2014 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Deone Bucannon, S , Washington State

Bucannon's excellent combine performances across multiple disciplines will push him up draft boards and possibly into the second or third round. In a class that has been lacking in top tier strong safety prospects, Bucannon is now in that mix.

Finished 2013 as a first team All-American and All-Pac-12 pick. Tons of experience with over 40 starts in his collegiate career. Tons of special teams experience. Big hitter who spent a lot of time in the box helping in run support. Takes great angles. Gets downhill in a hurry and looks to decleat his opponents.

Highpoints the ball well. Fast enough to challenge the football when in a deep half zone. Exceptional vertical and short area quickness. Above-average fluidity and will need some work in his man coverage technique. A little high cut, so will sometimes need an extra step to get his acceleration going. A bit over-aggressive at times, though. Bites on fakes. Shows a good feel for route recognition. Could be the top SS prospect on some boards, certainly in the Top 2 or 3.

Enough length to cover the slot man and most tight ends. Has a little bit of room on his frame to add more bulk.

Bucannon projects as a second rounder in the 2014 NFL Draft.
